Discover Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gloss with Lily-Rose Depp

chanels-rouge-coco-gloss-with-lily-rose-depp

On Wednesday, Maison Chanel revealed the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis as the face of its new makeup line. The young star, who turns 18 in May, fronts advertising for Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Gloss, and it’s a must-watch… The Franco-American actress shows off her radiant smile in a playful and sensual campaign from Mario Testino.

After being named as the face of Chanel’s No.5 L’Eau fragrance in 2016, Lily-Rose Depp is captured in an ad campaign for Chanel’s new beauty collection, Rogue Coco Gloss. The beauty ambassador — who recently walked down the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 runway during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week — highlights the coveted collection in a short video (above), while featuring the different shades of the must-have beauty product. Created by Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer, the luscious glosses have a melting gel texture thanks to a ‘hydraboost complex’ formulation, comprising natural waxes of jojoba, sunflower and mimosa, plus a natural coconut oil derivative, to help achieve that long-lasting colour.

Rouge Coco Gloss comes in 24 colors with a variety of effects to suit all tastes, styles and moods, from nude to chocolate brown and several shades of pink, red and purple.

The range of colors and textures is further expanded thanks to three accompanying top coats: a clear topcoat with added sparkle, a translucent neon orange-yellow and a deep black.

To celebrate the release of the Rouge Coco Gloss collection, Maison Chanel is set to launch a series of colourful stickers that will be available to download from the App Store from March 1, 2017. The Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss collection will be available at all leading beauty counters across the world from February 24, 2017.

 

 

 

 

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Shade Extension for Spring 2017

 

無題-1

NARS has just announced the launch of some brand new shades of its famous Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. This bold and versatile stick-format lip color now comes in an even more diverse array of highly pigmented shades, with a velvety matte finish. The brand has unveiled its new nudes, rule-breaking reds, and unexpected, audacious tones, designed to help you reach a brand new saturation point.

Virtually every color can work on everyone. Paired with a soft eye, even the darkest or brightest shade of lip color can create a striking makeup look on its own. With lips more than any other features, I follow a no rules approach.

François Nars, Founder and Creative Director

The formula of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil remains the same. It is the same old long-lasting lip color infused with silicones and emollients. The pencil creates a soft, flexible veil of creamy color that won’t dry out your lips. Its comfortable texture, enriched with nourishing vitamin E, promises to keep the velvety matte finish looking fresh all day long.

Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10%

 

clinique-fresh-pressed-daily-booster-with-pure-vitamin-c

Clinique has just released its powerful new anti-ager powered by pure vitamin C! The Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster is a super-nutritious age-defying concentrate that works just like your morning fresh pressed juice. The Booster mimics the effects of vitamin bombs and supplements to visibly rejuvenate skin.

The product is suitable for all skin types, and proven to be effective against uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. It delivers a high concentration of fresh vitamin C to brighten uneven skin, improve the look of numerous signs of aging, re-energize, and retexturize the skin.  In addition, vitamin C provides powerful antioxidant action, protecting skin from harmful environmental stressors.

In case you did not know, vitamin C is highly unstable and it naturally degrades when exposed to oxygen, which is, as we all know, all around us. Vitamin C is one of the most beneficial vitamins you can apply topically, but to harness its full power you have to use it while it’s still fresh. Since all antioxidants are at risk of destabilizing when exposed to air and light, only those products that are packaged in opaque containers or airless bottles can keep their ingredients stable. Clinique’s stay-fresh packaging is specifically designed to isolate the pure vitamin C until activation, keeping its freshness and full power for maximum results.

To use it, you have to firmly press inner bulb twice to release Vitamin C powder into the soothing emulsion. Shake to blend, remove the cap, and simply mix two drops of the solution with your favorite moisturizer. Use it morning and evening to power up your skin care routine. Once activated,  the Booster retains full power for seven days, but Clinique says that it may darken due to normal vitamin C oxidation.

clinique-fresh-pressed-daily-booster-mix-with2

Directions:

  1. Leave cap on. Remove foil.
  2. Firmly press inner bulb twice to release vitamin C powder into the soothing emulsion.
  3. Shake 15 seconds, and before each use.
  4. Remove cap.
  5. Mix two drops with your moisturizer AM and PM to power up your regular routine.
  6. For full potency, use within seven days then discard.

Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster is available as a 4-pack, for $76.50. This should be enough to boost your skin care regimen for a full month.

Bulgari Presents its First High Perfumery Collection for Men

the-bvlgari-le-gemme-mens-collection

Haute Joallier Bulgari presents the new ‘Le Gemme’ collection dedicated to men. A new revolutionary chapter in the story of the Roman jeweller. It was written in the DNA of the master of coloured gemstones that Bulgari would one day travel the roads of the world to seek, in order to reveal them, the secret correspondences between gemstones and fragrances. And thus in 2014 the first ‘Le Gemme’ collection for women appeared, an olfactory tribute to six precious stones that are emblematic of the Roman jeweller.

Echoing these precious Eaux de Parfum this new high perfumery collection dedicated to men revisits an entire aspect of ancient history following the precious stones and perfume roads that the great conquerors and luxury nomads of Antiquity discovered during their travels and their conquests. This twin voyage through the worlds of gemstones and scent recreates a legendary world of adventures along famous roads and across fabled regions from the mediterranean Basin to the Far East. With ‘Le Gemme’ collection dedicated to  men, Bulgari draws a very contemporary and new map of masculinity of which 21st century man is the heir.

cms_block_image_4616_v_1

Bulgari entrusted Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier with the task of transcribing the six gemstones of the collection in a radical palette. Like an olfactory ‘big- bang’, this new collection shakes up the codes of luxury perfumes for men. In the same way as stone cutters reveal the beauty of gemstones with their skill, Jacques Cavallier has worked exceptional raw materials to the limits of the possible so as to exalt their richness or reveal them in a new, unexpected register.

Between sacred and secular, wild and civilised, singularity and otherness, ‘Le Gemme’ collection for men reflects the pluralist personality of contemporary man. A combination of undisputed strength and magnetic character that since the dawn of time has never left the hear ts of powerful men in and around the Mediterranean, men that are both conquerors and seducers.

Bulgari Onekh

bulgari-le-gemme-men-onekh-malacencis-oud

To illustrate the ambivalence of black onyx the Perfumer chose the power of royal Oud. It has the balance between the different facets of this ingredient, a symbol of wealth and rank in Oriental countries where it has been used it for millennia. A product that is more expensive than gold, which is one of the most beautiful and loved natural notes in the world. For ‘Onekh’, Jacques Cavallier has used a sublime natural Oud: leathery and spicy wood, with notes of saffron and honey. The contrast between brittle, dry and smoked woods and the balmy, addictive and sensual notes serve to enhance this Oud of unprecedented quality.

Bulgari Garanat

bulgari-le-gemme-men-garanat

A symbol of the passion accompanying the deep red of the Garnet, but also of its light, the Perfumer has imagined a supremely elegant and virile Rose, translating the powerful energy of its colour which anchors this gemstone known since the dawn of times in the cradle of the greatest civilisations. A duality in which ancient mysteries and sophistication answer each other, transcribed in the dialogue between two symbolic ingredients: Rose and Incense. ‘Garanat’ is a perfume that is as rich and thick as velvet: curls of Roses and intoxicating incense chiaroscuro create a warm, surprising and fascinating fragrance with great masculine strength.

Bulgari Gyan

bulgari-le-gemme-men-gyan-heart-of-patchouli

Brightened by a generous dose of night Jasmine which envelops the scent with its sensuality, Patchouli illustrates the mysteries of the blue of the Sapphire in ‘Gyan’. This unique creation combines Patchouli with a flower, and delivers a very sophisticated particularly masculine perfume with an incomparable sillage: its trilogy of woods, dominated by its extraordinary heart of Indonesian Patchouli, illustrates the aristocratic grandeur and elegance of this stone of knowledge he pays tribute to. Jacques Cavallier has used Patchouli very generously, and reworked it in Grasse to highlight the most noble and beautiful aspects of its scent. Wisps of burned Incense intensify its aura and increase its mystery.

Bulgari Malakeos

bulgari-le-gemme-men-malakeos

Bulgari ‘Malakeos’ pays tribute to a classical theme of masculine perfumery, Fougère, that the Perfumer has entirely revisited. In search of a powerful naturalness, an icy and nurturing green freshness, the fragrance resonates with the properties and the colours of malachite and captures the deep and aromatic greens of the forests of the Ural. The unique character of this creation in which Lavender and Oakmoss reign, with a very rare Bourbon Geranium, is resolutely modern on its base of Musk. Like the brush strokes of an artist, the herbs, the woods and the musk recall the palette of the multitude of shades of brilliant, masculine and sensual green of the Malachite.

Bulgari Ambero

bulgari-le-gemme-men-ambero

The Vetiver root securely anchors ‘Ambero’ to the depths of the ear th and the shores of the Levant. Through spicy, rounded, unctuous and slightly ambery notes, the Perfumer presents a very different and contemporary interpretation of Vetiver with a warm, dense and voluptuous hear t which recalls that of Amber. It has a unique orientalism, to which Olibanum incense adds an extremely elegant character. Together it creates an ear thy, surprising and resolutely modern perfume.

Bulgari Tygar

bulgari-le-gemme-men-tygar

Bulgari ‘Tygar’ is a fragrance with incomparable brightness and a very strong personality. Around an explosive Grapefruit, an accord of deep woods and Ambrox captures the duality and the exceptional energies of the Tiger’s Eye. The first impression and impact is surprising. The base is dense, but still contains light and energy. The creation of this Ambery Citrus – the most Italian of the collection and a perfume with a strong identity – was a tremendous challenge for Jacques Cavallier: a new and dazzling contrast between Grapefruit with its freshness and light and the darker and more ear thy amber note of Ambrox, in a dosage which is unique on the market. ‘Tygar’ evokes sparkling and sophisticated virility.

Created from 1922 onwards, these are the most rare and luxurious scents in Chanel’s armoury, ranging from florals to leathers and orientals.

Exquisite precious materials, elegant bottles, timeless fragrances: ‘Les Exclusifs de Chanel’ was created between 1922 and 2016 by renowned perfumers with close links to the French fashion and beauty house. Ernest Beaux, Jacques Polge, and Olivier Polge have come up with their own interpretation of a place, texture, meeting or symbol loved by Gabrielle Chanel. Together they form a unique collection, taking us on a perfumed journey through Chanel’s history.

The collection consists of 15 4ml perfume bottles: 14 Eau de Parfum and one Eau de Cologne. An opportunity to (re)discover and appreciate a selection of rare fragrances which include hesperidium, woody, floral and oriental scents.

Fans of unusual perfumes and collectors will be pleased to discover that this set contains ‘Bel Respiro’, a floral evocation of spring, ‘Sycomore’, a woody scent based around vetiver, ‘Coromandel’ with its incense, benzoin, and patchouli notes, the oriental scent ‘Cuir de Russie’, the aromatic-floral-powdery ‘Jersey’, and the woody and fruity ‘N°18′.

The set also includes ’31 rue Cambon’, ’28 La Pausa’, ‘N°22’, ‘1932’, ‘Gardénia’, Beige’, Bois des Iles’, ‘Eau de Cologne’, and ‘Misia’, a fragrance created by Olivier Polge.

This ‘Les Exclusifs de Chanel’ set of 15 mini perfumes will go on sale on February 17 for €280, exclusively at Chanel Beauté stores and the brand’s e-shop.

Lady Emblem Elixir fragrance by Montblanc brings a new interpretation

montblanc-lady-emblem-elixir-ad

Valentine’s day is just around the corner! If you’re thinking about what to get for your significant other (or just as a gift from you to you), Montblanc’s Lady Emblem Elixir might be it. Montblanc’s Lady Emblem is captured in a bottle with a scent that represents all her qualities perfectly. Described as a woman with an intense gaze who captures your attention at first sight, she has a rebellious streak that contrasts her calm nature. Much like her, the fragrance is a combination of notes that contrast yet complement each other.

You can picture her preparing for a decisive encounter, or stepping up to a rostrum, expressing herself with calm and passion in equal measure

Beneath the floral notes, sits a hint of wood that adds to the allure of the Montblanc Lady Emblem. The scent opens with zesty mandarin; followed by dewy lychee to create a bubbly finish. Helmed by the Damask rose, the heart carefully reveals a harmonious mix of orange blossom, jasmine and iris. The infused sparks of vanilla, patchouli and sandalwood come together to round up the fragrance trail with a woody aroma. With its gracefulness injected with a hint of black pepper, the scent bursts into sensual elegance.

Top notes: mandarin, pepper, litchi
Heart: rose, orange blossom, jasmine, iris
Base: patchouli, vanilla, sandalwood

A reflection of the 43-faceted cut cap that is reminiscent of the Montblanc diamond that was inspired by the six-valley design, the flower-shaped bottle is dressed in a pink gold hue with metallic accents. The box pairs beautifully with the bottle because of its pink gold wash, making the perfectly sophisticated combination.

montblanc-lady-emblem-elixir

The Montblanc Lady Emblem Elixir collection comes in 3 sizes: 30ml ($80), 50ml ($122) and 75ml ($155). The series will be available from mid of February 2017 at selected stores.
